Growing in Christ: Simply just ask

Matthew 7:7-11
Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

It's quite simply ... Just ask Christ!
What do you need today? What are your hearts desire? Have you ask the one who answers prayers? Have you truly ask in faith?

The bible says..
Ephesians 3:20 (NKJV)
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

Remember God is your provider, your keeper, your peace, your everything ! Whatever you need today, stop and ask in prayers!…

Growing in Christ: Joy of the Lord

The bible tells us that the Joy of the Lord is our strength! This morning as I awoke, and got ready to run a few more errands. I felt pretty run down from everything this week! But our gracious, and loving God gently reminded me, about the appointment that I had yesterday. Christ reminded me of several compliments, I received from different people. It made my day a whole lots better!

When we are feeling down God will always use other people to encourage us! Either with a smile, a kind word, or with a word from Christ! Do you need a little encouragement today?

This bible tells you and I, that the Joy of the Lord is our strength! As you listen to the song below. Allow God to fill you with His Joy! Cast every care at His feet, and take up His perfect peace! Remember God is ALWAYS for you! You are Wonderfully, Beautifully, and Created in Christ! He withholds nothing good from you!!

Nehemiah 8:10
Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for w…

Growing in Christ: No Weapon!

Don't waste your breath, or strength fighting your enemies!

The bible is so clear. Countless times in the bible. God is seen saying. I will fight your battles, and be still and know that I am God!

When you see your enemies coming against you! Stand still! Sit down and take a seat, and watch the battle that belongs to the Lord. God's word does not lie! He promises that every tongue that rises up against you, He is about to seal it shut. He is about to put your enemies to shame! He is about to lift you up, before those who plot against you!

Proverbs 26:27(NKJV)
27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it,
And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.

Psalm 23:5
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

Isaiah 54:17 
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” …

Growing in Christ: Do unto others

Gooooood morning King Jesus! Gooooood morning Family and Friends!!
This is the Day! That the Lord has made and I will REJOICE and be GLAD in it!

Nugget of Godly wisdom...
Treat people how you yourself would like to be treated. Be friendly, kind, giving, compassionate, merciful, and selfless. As the scripture is clear you will reap what you sow. Good or bad!

Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

Have a blessed Thursday!! Love Sis Rashida

Growing in Christ: Delight myself in You!

*sings*  I delight myself in you! Captivated by your beauty! I'm overwhelmed! I'm overwhelmed by you!"
This song has been in my head for the past week! It reminds me to just stop and pause and enjoy all of God's creation. From the birth of my son Isaac, to the clouds in the sky ! When I stop and think how God created, everything Just by speaking..." Let it be" I am certainly in awe, on how powerful our God is! That even the Earth obeys His every command! Today, stop and soak in God's beauty, that surrounds us!
Jeremiah 10:12 12 He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom, And has stretched out the heavens at His discretion. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BiGb14tTaH4
Goooooood morning King Jesus! Gooooood morning Family and friends! Love Sis Rashida:)

Growing In Christ: What comes out of your mouth

Godly wisdom keeps you pure,wise, and Your character unblemished ... My verse for today!

Ephesians 4:29(MSG)
29 Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift.

Growing in Christ: My BFF

Do you have a friend that you just enjoy talking to? One of those BFF, hahahaha? There are certain people in my life, that I just really enjoy engaging in a conversation with daily. 
One of my favorite friends to talk to each day is Jesus. The bible calls Christ... A friend!
John 15:15 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
Proverbs 18:24-24 24 A man who has friends must himself be friendly, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
The same relationship and desires to spend time with my earthly friendship ! The same enthusiasm I have, to spend with Christ each day! The bible goes on to tells us to delight ourself in God. To delight ourself, is to enjoy the time we spend with Christ daily!
When you truly have a one on one relationship with Christ. When you really, seek out to know who Christ is! Your time spent with Christ each …

Growing in Christ: Pray in authority!

Last night I had the most wonderful dream! (what a joy to actually dream. With a 6 day old baby...hahahaha)
I dreamt  I was walking in the authority, that God has given every true believer! The authority to use His name, lined up completely with His word. Declaring the promises of God, over my life!
God does not want us to walk around saying wimpy prayers!! Pleading and begging God, to move! Christ wants us to walk in His God given authority! We must pray, like we know the "Greater One " dwells inside of us! 
Note these verses... Matthew 16:19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Do you not know that the Spirit of God dwells in you ?
1 Corinthians 6:19-20  Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body…
